FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Monday asked Europe (6) to have more flexibility in quarantine rules for players defending South American teams in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The director directed his appeal via a video clip that was shown during the General Assembly of the European Club Association (ECA).
“We have a difficult situation in the UK, but the players have to go back to play for their countries,” Infantino said in the recording.
In Brazil, the match against Argentina was halted after agents of the Health Monitoring Agency (Anvisa) went to the Neo Química Arena, in São Paulo, to demand the deportation of four Argentine players who lied in the state of health against Covid in. enter the country.
Giovanni Lo Celso, Emiliano Buendia, Emiliano Martinez and Christian Romero, who play in English football, did not mention that they were in the UK and, accordingly, did not meet the 14-day quarantine on Brazilian soil.
The International Football Association, in turn, indicated that it would analyze the suspension of the Brazil-Argentina match, which will be valid for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
